Description

[Presented by Dave Sweeton, Chief Technologist, Stout Systems]

You can write a data aggregation query and integrate external authentication APIs. On a good day, you can even craft a perfect Regex! But can you tell your boss (or client) -- with a reasonable degree of certainty -- how long it will take to do it? In our experience, estimating is the Achilles heel of many developers who are otherwise superhero developers. Is there any way that you can improve when it comes to this critical task? Or if you’re already freakishly good at it, can you help the rest of your team improve? Join us as Dave Sweeton, an excellent estimator himself, shares advice that will improve your software estimation skills by 0 to 1,000%!

This talk is back by popular demand, having debuted at CodeMash 2019 to a full house!
